    Really takes the fear out of Shakespeare

    I purchased this edition of King Lear for my 13 year old daughter, who was reading the play for her 8th grade Language Arts class. She is a voracious reader, but she wasn't enjoying reading this. Her appreciation of the story, and comprehension of the language increased dramatically. I love Will, but there is no reason to ignore new learning tools which would kindle this love in new generations of students. No Fear Shakespeare does that, and painlessly as well.

    No Fear King Lear

    This is Shakespeare. It is classic but the original language is difficult. The idea to put the original text next to modern English is brilliant. You get the story but you do not have to struggle with old English.

    Thank you! Well done!

    Great Book

    This was the first book from Shakespeare that I have actually read in my entire life. :) It was great! This book is wonderful if you have a hard time interpreting his writing. It has the original writing of Shakespeare on the left of the page and the translation of it in plain English on the right. I read this book in two days. It's a page turner for sure! Highly recomended.

    Great Book!!!

    I always liked the No Fear Shakespeare books but this one was definately my favorite of all of Shakespeares. It deals with family problems simple and large. No Fear did another great job on translating. Much conflict and death but certainly a great book.
